30 Stylish Things Every Man Wants Under the Tree

We've tracked down this season's coolest presents.

Need an incredible gift or two for the most tasteful guy you know? We've got you covered.

Oliver Cabell Travel Kit ($95)

Toss grooming gear into this handsome Italian-made kit, zip it up and take off. No more rummaging around the bottom of a duffel bag for that wayward tube of toothpaste.

Morgans Grooming Gift Set ($80)

Freshen up with this set including a couple of biodegradable bamboo wood toothbrushes, plus soaps and shave gear nicely fragranced with orange and vetiver. The wood handled razor will help get your day off to a smooth start.

Steelmont RS-511 Watch ($450)

Even the leather strap of this Steelmont watch is noteworthy, evocative of exquisite car upholstery. There are all sorts of motoring dashboard motifs built into the design of this three-hand Chronograph, a nifty addition to any enthusiast’s collection.

Tanner Goods Limited Edition Quad Wallet ($59)

Made from English bridle leather, this limited edition wallet with a clever four-sided design will keep cards organized and handy. Solid construction means it will just get better with use, and we love Huckberry's tree logo stamped into the grain.

Maison Louis Marie Candle ($34)

Sandalwood is a classic men's scent and is the top note in this addictive candle we found at Steven Alan, one of our favorite men's shops. This spicy stocking stuffer will burn for a solid 60 hours.

Pacifico Optical Choc Havana Sunglasses ($117)

It’s no secret Aussies know how to look great in the sun. These stylish thick shades were designed in Bondi Beach and crafted from premium Carl Zeiss Vision lenses with superior UV protection.

Basil Hayden's Bourbon ($39)

If your party host is a bourbon guy, the warm, slightly spicy kick of Basil Hayden's will be especially welcome at holiday time. A gift of this craft spirit is a guarantee you’ll be invited back next year.

Misen Chef's Knife ($65)

For the cook on your gift list, this knife forged from Japanese steel is a cut above others. The secret is the extra-acute blade angle for sharpness and a higher carbon content in the steel for strength.

Farmhouse Pottery Vase ($95)

The clean look of these Vermont clay vessels–the bottom portion is left elegantly unglazed–will fit in with any room or style. The little one works as a jam pot on the dining room table or as a pencil holder on a desk.

Incase DSLR Camera Bag ($49)

Any photographer hobbyist will appreciate this case to keep camera and lenses protected with its well-padded interior and heavy nylon outer shell. There's even a spot for an extra battery and charger in the zippered top.

John Derian Globe Paperweight ($60)

This piece of eye candy will dress up a desk in an instant. Hand-blown glass is the real deal, and gazing into the image of an antique map can prompt daydreams quicker than any WiFi-enabled gadget.

Suzanne Kasler: Inspired Interiors ($35)

Anyone thinking of doing a makeover of a space, large or small, will benefit from the style advice of designer Suzanne Kasler. Chock full of photos and inspiration for how to mix old stuff and new, and then edit it all down to achieve what she calls a “simple, tailored look.”

Whisky Peaks Rocks Glasses Set ($69)

Even without ice, these glasses are one of the coolest gifts this season. In a set of four, each features a topographic replica of an American peak: Denali, Half Dome, Mount Rainier and Mount Whitney executed in hand-blown glass.

Mott & Bow Premium Denim ($128)

We love both the look and fit of these jeans. Each pair is sprayed with a resin mix and sanded by hand, so no two are identical.    

Pour Over Stagg Kettle ($64)

Java junkies will rejoice at receiving this handsome and cleverly designed kettle for their next pour-over cup. The focused spout maintains control while pouring at a comfortable angle.

The Alchemist ($11) 

As the old proverb says: give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Give him a copy of The Alchemist and he'll have wisdom for a lifetime. Pick up a copy for yourself while you're at it- this read couldn't come more recommended. 

Hobes Desert Boots ($159)

These Italian suede beauties will adopt to the contours of your feet and get better with age. The lightweight crepe soles make them a perfect travel shoe, sure to get you around your next several bucket-list destinations.

Utter Nonsense Party Game ($19)

This party game is good clean fun (okay, maybe forget the “clean” part). For each round, one player acts as judge as the others speak in an accent—Italian accent, German accent, drunk accent… while saying unlikely/inappropriate phrases. Get ready for some naughty giggles.

Persol 3114 Sunglasses ($149)

These polarized lenses in black frames from Italian maker Persol are a stylish way to keep away the glare, from the slopes of Aspen to the shore of Saint-Tropez.

Griffin 11-in-1 Pocket Tool ($20)

Know a guy who needs to up his EDC game? This gizmo packs a lot of work into two inches of stainless steel. It's a bottle opener and a screwdriver and lots more. The pry bar alone is worth the price for all the dicey situations it can get you out of.

Onia Stripe Seersucker Swim Shorts ($145)

These quick-drying swim trunks start out stylin' and stay that way: the fabric has been engineered to resist fading no matter what your plans are. San Diego sun? Country club chlorine? Seychelles saltwater? It's all good.

Slightly Choppy Handmade Pennant ($54)

Your favorite SoCal surf beach is now a jaunty pennant. Hang one (or more) of these nautical-inspired flags on a wall inside or out. Good times.

Barebones Hori Hori Gardening Dagger ($24)

What to get the gardener who has everything? This, made of bamboo and stainless steel and ingenuity. Two blade edges, one serrated, one not, and a depth marker to see how deep a hole is for planting. There's even a bottle opener for after the chores are done. We said it was ingenious.

Rivay Selvedge Oxford Workshirt ($148)

We’ve made it clear that we’re fans of the Rivay aesthetic, and this workshirt is a perfect example of how the Rivay guys sweat the details. Superb Japanese cotton with a perfect unfussy point collar and real shell buttons are a couple of the particulars that make this shirt a wardrobe knockout.

Laphroaig Lore Single Malt Scotch ($125)

A new release from the legendary Laphroaig, Lore Single Malt is how you’ll be cementing friendships this season, sipping around the fire while planning your trip to Scotland.

Sonos PLAY:1 Compact Wireless Smart Speaker ($199)

The excellent price point on this Sonos speaker is a draw, but the real sell is the solid sound it delivers over home Wi-Fi, streaming your playlists from your favorite app. The holidays are party time, crank it up.

Master & Dynamic MH30 On Ear Headphone ($241)

Got an audiophile on your shopping list? Whatever their jam–Childish Gambino or Hamilton Leithhauser–is going to come through with amazing rich clarity with these leather headphones from Master & Dynamic.

Bravur Watches BW102G-W-LDG1 ($625)

A modern watch for a modern guy. There's so much to love about Bravur's Swedish-designed, Swiss-made piece in gold plated stainless steel with its green leather strap.
